Our reporters will bring you all the latest from interim Norwich City manager Alan Irvine's press conference as the Canaries prepare to host Barnsley in the Championship.

Ex-Norwich City player and now Barnsley head coach Paul Heckingbottom is not dismissing the Canaries' Championship promotion chances.

Norwich lie eight points behind sixth-placed Sheffield Wednesday ahead of the final nine league games and Heckingbottom, for one, is not predicting a tame end-of -season affair on Saturday.

'I reckon Norwich will still think they can do it (reach the playoffs), especially with the firepower they've got in the squad,' he said.

'The calibre of players in their squad, not just the 11 or on the bench, but the ones who can't even make the squad every week. They'll believe they've still got a chance.

'It's a great place to go and play, it'll be a full house and it's another big game for us against a top side who've recently been in the Premier League. It's another test for the players, can they beat Norwich again? Can they compete with Premier League players? These are the games we relish. We know that if we bring our best game, we're very tough to beat. We will go there on Saturday aiming for three points, as always.'
